EFF Urges Trusting Cheaters

Congress Must Protect Americans’ Location Privacy by Kate Tummarello.

From the post:

Your smartphone, navigation system, fitness device, and more know where you are most of the time. Law enforcement should need a warrant to access the information these technologies track.

Lawmakers have a chance to create warrant requirements for the sensitive location information collected by your devices.

It’s already against the law to intercept and transcribe all phone calls but the weight of the evidence shows the US government is doing exactly that.

The periodic EFF calls for legislation by known cheaters leave me puzzled.

Laws, to government agencies, mark “don’t get caught zones” and little more.

Protecting sensitive location information, to be effective, must be demanded by consumers of manufacturers.

No backdoors, no warrants, no snooping, it’s just that simple.
